Vapid Lacquer – More Holos




Happy Sunday, friends! Of course I slept in today even thought I had planned to wake up at 6 so I could do my laundry, clean and write up my next 5 posts. Yup, didn’t happen. I’ve been struggling to get posts done in advance which I know ensures regular posting. Even though I get home from work so early, I am usually tired and grumpy so the last thing I want to do is try to figure out what to post. Yesterday I ended up going to my nail places and I bought a few things, and then I proceeded to spend most of my day swatching and editing photos. I now have enough material for about two weeks worth of posts which I may need since I chopped off my nails. Yep, the oval/almond shape is gone. I kept that shape for about a week before I got sick of it so I am not back to my traditional square shape. Hey, it was a good experiment but I think I might prefer a square shape on my fingers. For today’s post I have the last two of the Vapid Lacquer holos that Krys sent to me. I had a hard time taking color-accurate photos that showed off the holo because the stupid sun would not come out. I took some pictures in my light box and ended up also swatching the colors on a nail wheel trying to catch the sun. You should have seen me: I would run outside, try to snap a picture in the sunlight and then it would get overcast before I took the shot. Seriously?! I did this about 8 times before I managed to get a picture with good sunlight.  Anyway, let’s take a look at my swatches of In The Pink and Twerk-uoise.

I also did not get a very strong holo effect with this polish and I’m wondering if I needed to shake it up more in case the particles were all settling. Still, it’s a very pretty jelly-type polish that was a little sheer, but it did build up nicely at three coats.

The polish was a little sheer, but it did build up easily so I applied three thin coats. While the linear holo effect isn’t super evident in these pictures, this polish comes alive in the sun. One thing I do want to mention is that the pink base color stained my nails a bright pink so make sure that you were a good base coat if you’re using this polish.

Well, now I have to get back to cleaning and doing some other errands. Don’t you have that weekends end up being all about doing work instead of just being a lazy bum? Hey, at least I didn’t have to wake up at 3:45 am today so that’s an improvement. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

  1. Isn’t it super satisfying to cut your nails after a swatch session? I actually love that feeling; being done, cutting my nails and having little naked nubs! These are both so pretty, it’s a shame that the pink one stained! It’s really awesome that you’re able to write up posts in advance at all, I should have done that a few weeks ago so I didn’t just disappear when school got crazy! Anyway, can’t wait to see your new polishes and more of your swatches!! 🙂

  2. Yay! For you cutting your nails! I have to say all these stars and people wearing these “stiletto” nails are just YUCK! I love square nails! And you have great hands! So rock on with the square nails!

  3. I can’t wait to see your square nails again, it looks so much better! I didn’t enjoy seeing the colors as much on the oval shape, just not flattering. These colors are pretty, but nail staining makes me hesitate.

    1. I like the rounded shape, but I much prefer square on myself. They’re pretty short now so I think I’m going to have to let them grow out a bit before I can continue swatching.

  4. “Don’t you have that weekends end up being all about doing work instead of just being a lazy bum?” Yes, yes, I do. And then you’re like, “I don’t want to clean. So I’ll just be lazy. No, I have to clean. Nah, it can wait. You should clean. You should clean. You should clean. OK, FINE, I”LL CLEAN, because I can’t relax anyway!!!” Adulthood…it is teh suck.
    Also annoying: the sun being a jerk when you have holo polishes to swatch. C’mon, you jerk sun, don’t you know this is important business?!
    I bet I would like Twerk-oise (lol at that name), although the holo looks weaker than the pink one. In The Pink is a pretty “you” color, but it’s too bad about the staining.
